Gray’s Journal kept during his visit to the Lakes in October 1769 was originally written in a notebook and then copied into letters to his friend, Dr Thomas Wharton. It has never been published before as a separate entity, though it does appear as an appendix to reprints of West’s Guide (Woodstock). This edition includes engravings by Joseph Farington of views from Gray’s route.
A volume with an irresistible appeal to all devotees of the Lakes... Dr Roberts’ editorial additions are scholarly but eminently readable and highly informative.
